Basic DIY Bookbinding Demonstration with Hot Glue Gun [VIDEO]

My first bookbinding video tutorial was successful beyond my wildest dreams (as I write this it has been viewed more than 784,000 time – that is crazy!) I decided it was time to revisit that tutorial, update it a little, and try using hot glue to bind everything together. This new video also features my simple home made binding jig made from scrap lumber. Full plans for the Bookbinding Jig (including a detailed parts list) are available on this site.

Tools Required:

Bookbinding Jig
Exacto Knife
Bone Folder
Heavy Duty Hot Glue Gun
Straight Edge Metal Ruler
Metal Wall Scraper or Putty Knife
Card Stock for Cover
Paper for Book Block
